I’ve heard that Ketones are bad. Why would I want them in my body?

Some people, especially medical professionals, have only heard about ketosis in the context of a condition that Type 1 diabetics have a risk of, called ketoacidosis. This is when the body produces way too many ketones, and the blood turns acidic, which can be deadly. As long as you have a working pancreas, you are not in danger of developing ketoacidosis. Nutritional ketosis is a benign state.
